    Holocaust Memorial Day: 27 January 2023

    by RE Moodle administrator -

    Holocaust Memorial Day Trust

    The theme for 2023 is Ordinary People. Ordinary people were involved in all aspects of the Holocaust, Nazi persecution of other groups, and in the genocides that took place in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. Ordinary people were perpetrators, bystanders, rescuers, witnesses – and ordinary people were victims.

    There are lots of freely downloadable resources to help schools here.
